There are plenty of table vendors to peruse and delicious food to enjoy from local businesses. Live performances on the entertainment stage include music, dramatic scenes, singing, and story-telling from the members of our community and some special guests too. At noon the children’s maypole dance is featured as the iconic centerpiece of the fair. The Maypole dance is a colorful performance central to the festival life of all Waldorf schools that follows an ancient tradition started in May festivals as early as the sixteenth century. Come hear our students play music and wind the pole with colorful ribbons to celebrate the change of seasons. This year we are excited to host the May Fair as our first festival at our new campus in Andersonville!
